Wednesday 12th August 2020, 17:30pm – 18:30pm.

Hosted by Mark Sherlock (Dublin, Ireland)

This session focuses on adrenal masses and when clinicians should be concerned about the possibility of malignancy. Adrenal masses pose a diagnostic challenge for clinicians, and significant radiological resources are often utilised to try to differentiate benign from malignant lesions. The session focuses on appropriate radiological imaging in tandem with biochemical investigations to determine the likelihood of malignancy. There is also a focus on adrenocortical carcinoma, a rare malignancy which is highly aggressive and has a poor prognosis.

Learning objectives:

  1. Competence at biochemical interrogation and screening protocols for adrenal masses
  2. An understanding of the role of imaging in investigation of adrenal masses
  3. Factors associated with risk of malignancy in adrenal lesions
  4. Diagnosis and management of adrenocortical carcinoma
  5. Utilisation of serum biochemistry and the urinary steroid metabolome in evaluation of adrenal lesions.
